A really unique gift for someone who already has everything. A lovely reminder of the things that happened in the 1950's - the adverts especially made us all chuckle. A good buy!

The 60's Decade Book was brilliant! Very well presented and the recipient loved it. Thank you.

What on earth do you buy for a ruby wedding anniversary gift for relatives ? They don't NEED anything. They don't do ornaments or trinkets with any sentimental messages on them. Tricky !I solved the problem with this great gift. Their wedding was in 1976 so they both could share their memories of the whole decade together. Perfect, and different.Thank you.

The book is made to a very high standard and is overall a fantastic gift to give to my parent. I have already recommended it to my friends.

I purchased this book for my grandads 70th birthday. I purchased it on the Saturday afternoon which was bank holiday weekend and received it first thing Thursday Morning. It's well worth the money, very thick, beautifully presented with a personalised name, a unique gift. Looking forward to my grandad opening it and reminiscing over hours of reading. Will definitely purchase again for other family members.

Of the highest quality, unique and fantastic value. A gift that will be treasured for many years.

Brilliant - so many things we remembered and lots of ads that were in the papers we had forgotten about. It was great! So much fun to read and good memories and the usual disagreements over the world events of the time but that's what made it interesting!.
Very easy to purchase what I needed from the website. Delivery was fast and the books were exactly as ordered (personalised). A very pleasant shopping experience.

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!
DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM
wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry.
Would not recommend to anyone.
Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better.
Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet.
If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night.
I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order.
Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories.
If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer.
In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

A great cover and fronts piece.
A great cover and fronts piece.
However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

Absolutely brilliant company
Absolutely brilliant company. Bought the Leeds united memory book It is brilliant cant wait to give the gift because I know the recipient is going to be absolutely amazed by it.

The child's name only appears on the opening page of each story. Other companies replace the name of the character in the story with the child's name.
The format and quality of the book prints and presentation are good.

Very disappointed in this book for so much money - unfortunately I believed my granddaughter would appear in the story not just at the top of the pages - feel as if I’ve been conned!
